I’m genetically designed to hate lunch meat.  There’s been so much discussion in my life about the qualities required for edible lunchmeat, my sister Amelia just doesn’t eat sandwiches at all any more.  Some lunch meat is wet, some is to dry, anything coming prepackaged is frightening.  And when Rocke’s Butcher Shop moved across the […]

This stuffed chicken breast recipe was adapted from a recipe in Cooking Light.  I’ve been on the lookout for some new low calorie recipes for my clients, but somehow the typical “light” recipes just don’t call to me so I rarely give them a go.  I made this recipe twice, originally with feta as written, […]

This Pad Thai recipe is an adaptation of a recipe from a playgroup friend from Austin.  Jam has created a fabulous restaurant and Thai Market in Austin called Thai Fresh, if you’re in the area, I highly recommend you check it out.  Cory and I both love Pad Thai, so I decided to give this […]

The title may be a tad bit misleading, as I’d guess most people wouldn’t call this party an “easy” menu for a child’s 5th birthday party, but I’d say it was certainly elegant.  Since I’m just rolling from one party straight into the next, LE’s Fifth birthday party was a combination of two events in […]

The $100+panini maker is one specialty appliance I refuse to own.  I’m not suggesting you shouldn’t own one if you so choose, but I am applianced out and a good grill pan will work just fine.  Between the stand mixer, the blender, the food processor, the waffle iron, the coffee grinder, the coffee pot, and […]

You know those one dish meals people are always talking about?  This was my attempt at one of those.  At the end of the day, I think I prefer this recipe strictly spinach,  keeping the meat on the side.  Preferably with beef.  Of course you know me, I’d eat beef every day of the week […]

I’m back!  Sorry for the long hiatus in posting.  Life has just been beyond busy, and frankly, I’ve been suffering from a lack of inspiration so I’ve been cooking many meals which I’ve already blogged.  I’ve been focusing my creative juices in some other places, some worthwhile, some not so much.  Anyway, I sought out […]

Fall is fleeting, and winter is closing in on us.  One of my favorite things about this part of the year is most people consider it acceptable – even gratifying – to eat soup at least once a week.  National Soup Swap Day will be somewhere towards the end of January.  I’ll be hosting one […]

This is pasta with spirit.  It’s essentially a melding and blending of flavors that grab your tongue and say, “Open up!  This is what it feels like to really live.”  Olives seem to be a love them or hate them kind of food.  I am constantly surrounded by people (including my sweet sisters and a […]
